SUMMARY

On the 8th of July 2009, the leaders of the eight most powerful countries in the world met for three days in the earthquake- ravaged town of L’Aquila in Italy to make plans for the future of our society and our planet. On 27th June, Kieran Hurley hitched a lift from Glasgow, alone, to be there too.

Hitch is an intimate piece of contemporary storytelling about the real experience of this journey. It asks questions about the meaning and purpose of political protest, the limits of personal power and the possibility of change.

Humorous, honest, thought-provoking and ultimately hopeful, Hitch is a story of global leaders, compassionate strangers, a young man…and his thumb. Music by Over The Wall.

"The best performance I have ever seen."
